Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods

Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods (CAN) is committed to equity, diversity, and accessibility. CAN recognizes that people with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions have multiple intersecting identities that affect their experiences and daily life. CAN represents and honours all identities by centering decolonization and using both an intersectional lens and Disability Justice framework.

CAN is dedicated to education, whether community members, government, businesses, organizations, and/or communities. Our material is adjustable to new learners or more experienced audiences and delivered in a variety of ways. We deliver workshops, including our current four: Disability Awareness, Disability Justice, Gender and Sexuality Diversity, and Imposter Syndrome. We do presentations for conferences on accessibility, disability awareness, streetscapes, transportation, poverty, 2SLGBTQIA+ (Queer) issues, and privileges and oppressions.

CAN does consultation work, engaging collaboratively to find creative solutions to, and educate about, barriers within communities. Projects include: accessibility, transportation, advocacy, empowerment, disability awareness, poverty, 2SLGBTQIA+ (Queer) issues, disability justice, and more.

Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods empowers people with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions, enables people to advocate for themselves and others, builds community, and celebrates diversity within our communities.
